What is the punishment for reporting a false DV charge?

If it's proven that the person never got hit and none of even happened but made a false a report about it?

One time I was minding my own business and heard a conversation, where a girl told her friend that she was breaking up but would also falsely have him charge with assault. Hopefully it didn't go through and they found out it's false. I don't think cops are that stupid.

  • Filing a false report is a crime and the person should get to do time.. At least a year in prison and charged as a felon

  • I think you can get in big trouble for falsely accusing someone they hit you with wasting police time and false accusations with malice - In most serious cases it can be jail time and guy can sue her for defamation.
